Advanced laser LED hybrid technology for exceptional color performance

With state-of-the-art laser LED hybrid technology, the Pro9000 generates RGB primary colors directly from the light engine without the need of a color wheel. That means rainbow effect and ghost images are greatly minimized while enhancing color accuracy to reach 80% NTSC color gamut – 50% more color spectrum than conventional mercury lamp projectors.

Lamp-free, mercury-free design

Powered by the latest laser LED hybrid light engine technology, the ViewSonic Pro9000 uses a combination of laser and LEDs to deliver a true lamp-free, mercury-free projection that is capable of operating 4X longer light life than a conventional mercury lamp projector. With over 20,000 hours of operation, the Pro9000 is designed to achieve optimized energy efficiency, brightness sustainability and reliable performance.

 

Stunning picture quality with Full HD 1080p

ViewSonic Pro9000 sporting full HD 1920x1080 (1080p) native resolution with DarkChip3 technology by Texas Instruments offers the sharpest and clearest picture available. It delivers exceptional details and astonishing clarity for the best visual experience. With TI DarkChip3 technology, the Pro9000 is the perfect home theater projector for watching all types of high definition formats.

 

100,000:1 ultra high contrast ratio for razor-sharp images

Powered by TI DarkChip3 technology, the ViewSonic Pro9000 is packed with 1,600 ANSI lumens and 100,000:1 ultra-high contrast ratio to enhance finer detail of gray, which is the key for delivering excellent clarity and details especially in dark-scene movies. That makes the Pro9000 the perfect choice for home theater and entertainment center environments.

DLP Technology

Advanced DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology allows you to experience crystal clear, razor-sharp and lifelike images with the same DLP technology that Hollywood relies on. For fast action, the response time is 1,000 times faster than similar LCD based projectors. And with no air filters to clean or change, the latest generation of DLP based projectors from ViewSonic offer one of the lowest TCO (total cost of ownership) in the industry. Check out the TCO calculator at http://www.viewsonic.com/viewschool/dlp-tco-calculator/

 

Dual HDMI for true digital video clarity

Equipped with dual HDMI inputs, the Pro9000 delivers the highest picture and sound quality available in the market without losing any degradation. It's perfect for connecting to any HDMI-enabled 1080p devices from media players, game consoles, laptops, computers to Blu-ray DVD players.

Consistent brightness for consistent performance

The Pro9000, equipped with advanced laser LED hybrid technology, has light life over 20,000 hours – 4X longer than a conventional mercury lamp projector. Unlike mercury lamp projectors which brightness will reduce to half its original level after 2,000 hours of usage, the Pro9000 has superior brightness sustainability for extended period. That means the Pro9000 provides reliable, consistent performance that maintains its original brightness for a long period of time. After playing hundreds of movies, the Pro9000 home theater projector will still be as bright and shine as if it was the first time.

 

Instant on/off for greener, smarter energy efficiency

With lamp-free hybrid light technology, the Pro9000 takes a couple seconds to reach its full brightness level. Furthermore, the projector can instantly shut off to eliminate the time and power for cool down – an advanced improvement for greener, smarter energy efficiency.

 

ECO mode saves money, energy and green the planet

With only a slight 20% decrease in brightness, the ECO-mode function can extend the life of your lamp by almost 50% and up to 5,000 hours in some cases. Other benefits of ECO-mode operation include reduced power consumption, as well as less heat and audible noise output. It´s good for the environment and great for your budget. The ECO-mode function will definitely help lower your total cost of ownership (TCO).

 

Peace of mind with one of the best warranties in the business

Backed by our 25 year reputation for quality and reliability, ViewSonic offers one of the industry´s best overall projector warranty with 3-year limited parts, and first year free Express Exchange service. Don´t be fooled by seemingly longer warranties out there in the market that exclude the more vulnerable systems and moving parts.

The 5 Best Home Theater Projectors

Priced for moderately serious videophiles, the full 1080p HD ViewSonic Pro9000 $1,754.99 at Amazon is available both by itself and from the sort of dealers who will install and calibrate the projector for you, help match it to an appropriate screen and screen size for your home theater, and more.

"We think ViewSonic has a winner of a projector on its hands with the PRO9000."

We think ViewSonic has a winner of a projector on its hands with the PRO9000. Its cool and quiet operation, relatively compact size and light weight, excellent color reproduction, stellar remote, and admirable brightness levels are trumped only by its 20,000-hour “lamp” rating. We didn’t miss this projector’s lack of 3D capability for a second, but we’ll let you decide whether lens shifting trumps never having to swap out a pricey light bulb. Regardless, this is a nicely competitive projector, and an excellent choice in the under-$4000 price class, especially for those who prize realistic color output.

Best Home Theater Products Exhibited at CES 2013

In this final entry of my CES 2013 wrap-up is a look at video projectors. One thing that has become evident in the past couple of CES's is that there aren't as many video projector companies exhibiting at the show - as most have opted for speeding their time and resources exhibiting at CEDIA, which is a more home theater-centric tradeshow that is held every September a rotating locations around the U.S.

DT's Guide to the Super Bowl

Do you prefer to measure screen size in terms of yards, rather than inches? We get that. The good news for those of us who have enough free space and control over ambient light is that projectors offer more inches per dollar than televisions – by a long shot.

ViewSonic Pro9000

Priced for moderately serious videophiles, the full 1080p HD ViewSonic Pro9000 is available both by itself and from the sort of dealers who will install and calibrate the projector for you, help match it to an appropriate screen and screen size for your home theater, and more. It lacks some features you might expect—including, for example, frame interpolation—but it offers a hybrid LED and laser light source that should last the life of the projector, and it delivers a respectably high-quality image.

ViewSonic's Pro9000 Projector Combines LEDs & Lasers

A few years ago a respected member of the video market emphatically told CE Pro that dealers should look past the marketing hype of anamorphic video systems and focus on new light engine technologies like LED and lasers because these technologies are the future of the video market. Based on the release of ViewSonic's Pro 9000 projector, the video category industry member was 100 percent on the money with his forecast. ViewSonic's latest projector is a state-of-the-art product that made its debut at the 2012 InfoComm show and it is now available to electronics professionals, that want a high performing, low maintenance projector that is priced at a consumer friendly level.
